It's exciting and will perhaps have a cascade effect throughout the Middle East. And while it will no doubt increase the risk of Iran-style extremism, maintaining the status quo through repression would only make the inevitable change all the more radical.

You know, as the darling of conservative intellectuals, Edmund Burke, pointed out, if your government and society has no mechanism to redress grievances, problems fester and ultimately undermine the very institutions you're trying to preserve. Thus, paradoxically, the only way to maintain continuity is through constant change.

I'm high alright. But not on false drugs. I'm high on the real thing: powerful gasoline, a clean windshield, and a shoeshine.
